Sellout Crowd Expect For Saturday's Duel In The Desert Between Arizona and ASU

If you don't already have your tickets for Saturday's showdown between the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils, you may be out of luck. After a big day of ticket sales, the university announced Sun Devil Stadium is sold out. Doug Haller tweeted the info.

Saturday's Territorial Cup between ASU and Arizona now officially a sell out. Standing-room only tickets gone.

This is a heated rivalry and features two teams desperate for a win. With a sellout crowd expected, this year's Duel In The Desert has the potential to be an instant classic. Combine that with Arizona State calling for all fans to wear black in their second-ever "Blackout" and there will be no shortage of excitement from Tempe.

The Sun Devils have played very well at home in 2011 and have defeated their opponents by an average of three touchdowns. Their struggles on the road are well documented, but you have to like ASU's chances with the crowd on their side.

For Arizona, they're simply looking to send their seniors out in style as they prepare for next season. Nothing would please Nick Foles, Keola Antolin, Juron Criner and Trevin Wade more than to silence Sun Devil Stadium with an upset victory. It won't be easy, but this rivalry has featured some wild and wacky games in recent years.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
